World Hope is a very young organisation that has been built on the experience and vision of Daniel Zelli, the executive director and international chairman. After eight years leadership experience in a leading Humanitarian Aid organisation, Daniel had the vision to go beyond providing Aid and work with nations to find solutions of hope within the nations themselves.
World Hope is about empowering people to find Hope!
World Hope is a non-religious humanitarian Aid organisation that exists to give hope to this world by helping people. The unique thing about World Hope is that everybody that works for World Hope is a volunteer. No money is given to staff and all money raised it directed to the project at hand.
Structurally, our head office is situated and governed by a board of directors in Australia. For each country that World Hope is in, and will be in, it has a national office with local people on its board. The only exception is the international chairman which sits on every national board. Each country has its own registered branch, with a local board and local staff.
World Hope is run according to Australian Tax Office guidelines for charitable organisations and maintains a high level of accountability and reporting in international offices.
Our mission is to be involved in disaster relief, humanitarian aid, community development and education. World Hope will help anybody in need independent of religion, race, gender or status.
Our values are:
- Humility (Eat where the people eat, sleep where the people sleep)
- Sustainability (Don't just give people fish, teach them how to fish)
- Longevity (Long term gain is better than short term premature delivery)
- Holistic Approach (consider all aspects of the persons' needs, and to then help them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually)
Our motivation is compassion.
